A lovely book, and far more comprehensive than I expected. I already travel with carryon for one-week holidays, and I only bought this to see if I could do the same for an upcoming 2 week trip and a future travelling trip to Japan. Now I've told my husband we need to buy backpacks and go travelling for a few years..... I might have to work on him a bit!

This is such a well written book and a genuine pleasure to read no mater what type of traveller you are or where you are going. I'm a seasoned traveller but have never quite mastered the art of packing light. Usually disappointed by books and articles that claim to have the solution, I found this book provides such a wealth of information in a highly practical way that you feel inspired to follow Erin's example. I loved that you can pick and choose the way you read the book skipping between chapters as needed and going back to others as reminders. It's not often such a practical book makes a really good read. Bravo!

As a keen user and advocate of the Getting Things Done approach to stress-free productivity, I am always looking for ways of improving (that is making them simpler, easier and less stressful) the way I do most things.

This book costs the same as a short bus ride or taxi fare but you’ll save many times this amount the first time you travel on an airline that charges you to check in a single bag!

Erin and her partner have been continuously travelling the world with their entire possessions strapped to their backs for the last six years and have NEVER checked in a bag! So Erin knows what she’s talking about.

As she says in the introduction "every time I whiz through an airport in ten minutes while others are crowding around the baggage carousel, every time I waltz onto a bus without worrying if my bag will emerge from the luggage storage at the end of the journey . . . I am convinced it's the best way to travel".

Part 1 - Getting Started asks why would you want to do this and some basic principles that need to be mastered and gives advice on what luggage works best for carry-on.

Part 2 - What to Pack provides advice on the best travel clothes with a section on women's clothes and a (predictably) shorter section for men's clothes. If you're heading for the colder climates, then there's advice on what to wear. Then there are sections on toiletries, electronics (the longest section of the whole book!), miscellaneous and luxury items (if you must), and documents and money. Finally, she tells you what NOT to pack!

Part 3 - Preparing for Departure is about HOW to pack and for those with a GTD-sense of the world, her advice on packing organisers is sensible.

I will be leaving the UK next year, to live and work somewhere (no real idea where, yet, although the idea of somewhere with a wee bit more sun appeals, as the nights lengthen here in the north of Scotland). Since I will be living the life of a digital nomad I know that there is only a limited amount of “stuff” I can take with me.

I have been a fan of NeverEndingVoyage for some time now. It offers no nonsense advice, along with wonderful production values — so I knew that this book would follow suit. And I was not disappointed.

The idea of heading off on adventures with no fixed end date, with just what you can carry, is bad enough in many people’s opinions — so to think of doing so with simply a carry-on bag further compounds this fear.

Erin does a marvellous job of explaining every step of the process, the reasons behind certain choices, with alternatives and a plethora of links and information — she does not preach here, instead merely showing a potential path. For me, this is exactly what I needed.

The section with interviews with other carry-on travellers is also fascinating, as it demonstrates that this way to travel is not for only one certain narrowly defined group.

Whether I decide to go carry-on only has yet to be decided, as I wish to spend long periods of time out in wilder places, where more rugged bushcraft tools and equipment will be essential. But what this book has done is help me streamline my thinking and has shown me new ways to do things that I know will be invaluable in the coming years.

If you are thinking of getting this book — whether for your next trip, or for someone you know will soon be going away, I would not hesitate to say buy it. Well written, informative and exactly what is needed.

This is the most comprehensive & helpful guide to travelling with a carry-on! Very well-structured, full of personal practical tips that are easy to follow or adjust to your needs, as Erin likes to suggest in the book. As a digital nomad myself, I do appreciate a lot the chapters about electronics, tools and apps Erin & Simon use. The book is not only full of great and well researched info, but it includes plenty of real (and funny!) situations from their travels which made me feel I was reading a travel book :) Definitely recommended!

I’m really amazed at amount of information Erin carefully researched and included in this book.
This guide is very complete and covers all aspects of packing light: why, what, and how.
It gives the basic principles and inspiration for traveling light, and tells you the secret to fit everything in a carry on sized backpack or rolling suitcase.
There are complete packing lists for him and for her, in addition to many examples of people who travel light in different situations: alone, in couple, in family, in cold weather, carrying a lot of photography equipment or beauty products. It proves that everyone can travel light.
More importantly, there are professional and practical tips to help you chose your luggage, clothes and technology according to your needs, with plenty of reviews of different available options.
